    Hopefully we'll all be enjoying a more prosperous time soon. I think it may take a year or so for big recovery gains to happen, as in like for like growth in a substantial way. We'll get thee though, as long as those damn bankers behave themselves.

    The different value seems strange. It could be a slight design tweak and there may be another different value component on the same circuit to make up for it. It could also be a part number instead of a unit value maybe. Is the board revision the same as the previous ones you had? For example ther have been three versions of my UD3P, 1.0, 1.1 and 1.6. All three have been subtly different. The 1.6 version had some different components near the DIMM slots I think.

    I do have the computer going through a surge protector/battery backup, although the battery backup only supports a little over 500 watts. When gaming, I have to plug the computer into a non-battery outlet on the strip because the battery protected outlets can't handle the wattage of driving the 2 cards and the i7. (the alarm will go off, but doesn't when only using 2d applications) I do have a Furman power conditioner/surge protector that I will relegate to computer duties with this newest mobo once my rig is rebuilt.
    I'm not an electronics guru, but your ups might be the culprit. I definitely wouldn't use it with your 3rd mobo.

    It's the same revision, v1.0. The stamped number of the blown compnenet on the old mobo is #819 and on the new board, its #909 I believe. (Mobo is in the case now and can't see it, but if memory serves...)

    This is definitely a newer board though. Higher serial # and it came with a flexible SLI bridge, which is something I've wished these boards came with, but it looks like they do now. I will say, I was hoping I'd get a ex58a-ud5 accidentally, hoping that maybe they were in stock, but just not being released yet. No such luck. That happened couple years back with the Antec P183 cases. People ordering from NewEgg were getting P183's in a P180 box.

    Yeah, bankers behaving is always questionable. ha ha But I guess miracles can happen!

    I 100% agree! I thought the same thing, so it is not being used this time around.

    I wonder what the differences are if anything.

    Do those BIOS settings look ok, or should I be setting more of the voltages manually?

    For your overclocking ventures and even at stock, I would personally like to know that all the following are set by me manually:

    Advanced Voltage Control:
    CPU
    Load Line Calibration ......................[Disabled]
    CPU Vcore ................................... 1.10000v
    QPI/VTT Voltage 1.150v .................AUTO
    CPU PLL 1.800v ............................ 1.800v

    MCH/ICH

    PCIE 1.500v ................................. 1.500v
    QPI PLL 1.100v ..............................AUTO
    IOH Core 1.100v ............................AUTO
    ICH I/O 1.500v ..............................AUTO
    ICH Core 1.1v ...............................AUTO

    DRAM

    DRAM Voltage 1.500v .................... 1.65v (set by XMP profile)

    I dislike using XMP and prefer to set all RAM timings except the really obscure ones manually.

    Unfortunately, like I say, I have zero experience currently on i7 nd i5 settings. Lsdmeasap will definitely know what you should set. The settings may be within a certain range that you have to find the optimal setting for yourself, but at least you'll have an idea of how to precede.

    Same problem but I know when it happened. Gigabyte GA-EX58-UD5, Diamond 4890 XOC 1Gig, Antec TruePower Trio 650W, 1.5TB Windows 7, 1.5TB 10.5.8, 300GB Snow, DD 4.0.
    No sound but otherwise rock solid. I installed Final Cut Studio 2009, Logic, iLife 09, iWork 09. All running good. So I decide to hook up my main Mac, QuickSilver, in target disk mode and as soon as I push the Firewire cable into the Firewire connector, on the back of the UD5 motherboard, it shuts down.
    I hit the reset, no joy. I hit the power switch, no joy. I turned off the main switch, on the power supply, and back on then hit the power switch. The 2 7 segment debug LEDs flashed and a couple of the LEDs, by the ATX power connector come on and the fans kick, but that's all. Not even a half second. I unplugged, pulled the battery, shorted the CMOS pins, pushed the CMOS switch, plugged in, replaced the battery, tried to boot and no joy. I pulled the video card and tried all the above again, just to take a load off the power supply and no joy. I've tried a different PSU and no joy. Any body got any ideas?
    I know we're not to discus RMA's, but is it OK to ask how to get one from Gigabyte since it's been more than 30 days and Micro Center won't do anything after 30 days?

    Do you have the burnt chip on the board as mentioned in this post? If so you will have to RMA.

    RMA Page is here
    RMA

    I do know I saw a thread not long ago about MAC Firewire being wired incorrectly for these boards, so this is likely the problem. Do NOT plug your firewire into the USB Ports of course either, I have seen this mistake as well.

    I will try to find the thread for you about the firewire, I'll post back soon as I can find it

    *Edit*

    Here is one thread similar firewire/mac issue, something with the way MAC handles target disk mode.
    http://forums.tweaktown.com/f69/ga-e...tml#post306899

    There are a few more as well, just having a hard time finding them right now
